It’s that sad time again where we wave adieu to one of our staff, with our Hannah soon heading off to pastures Bristolian. That of course means it’s hiring time, so if you or someone you know is keen on working with us, start polishing that CV!
We have a full-time position assisting with events and libraries, and we need someone hard-working and enthusiastic who knows their graphic apples from their sequential oranges.
Gosh! has been around for nearly 25 years now, and in that time we’ve built up what we hope to be a reputation for excellent, knowledgeable service, and a range of comics that are second to none. We’re a small, busy store that needs staff who can juggle friendly, helpful service with a diverse range of administrative tasks, while also helping to maintain a well-presented shop floor. Needless to say, organisational skills and an attention to detail are a must.
Experience within a busy retail environment is essential, and it’ll certainly be a bonus to have had experience within the book trade. Applicants should also be well versed with common office software, particularly spreadsheets, and experience with WordPress would be a bonus, as would some writing chops. And it might help a little if you’ve got a burning passion for comics.
A job description will be made available on application, but we do like to let people’s strengths lead them to certain roles within the shop, and there are certainly opportunities for all our staff to place their own stamp upon Gosh’s identity.
So drop us a line if you’re interested! We will be taking applications until the end of February, shortlisting in the first week of March, and then interviewing shortlisted applicants in the week starting Monday 9th March. The position will commence in the week starting Monday 13th April.
Please send your CV and (very importantly) a brief cover letter for the attention of Andrew to firstname.lastname@example.org.
